Dr. Paul Howard’s Man-Chili Recipe

Ingredients

2 Tbsps. Olive Oil

2 Pounds Sirloin Steak Cut into 1” cubes

1 lb. Ground Beef 80/20 or leaner

3 Links (or 12 oz.) of Fresh Chorizo Sausage, casing removed

1 Large Yellow Spanish Onion, chopped

1/3 Cup of Chili Powder

2 Tbsp. Garlic Salt

1 Tbsp. Dried Basil

2 Cans (14 ½ oz. each) Peeled Whole Tomatoes, Un-drained

1 Box (32 oz.) Beef Broth, low-salt

2 Cans of Dark Beer

1 Cup Chopped Cilantro

2 Cinnamon Sticks

4 Fresh Bay Leaves

2 Large Green Jalapenos slit long ways 3 times each otherwise leaving the peppers intact

3 Tbsps. Yellow Cornmeal

Salt & Pepper to taste and/or Cayenne Pepper (gently)

Grated Cheddar Cheese and Sour Cream Garnish!

Directions

(1)   Heat the olive oil in a large pot to be used for the chili.  Brown the sirloin chunks in batches.  Remove from the pot and drain.  Add the ground beef, chorizo, and the chopped onions breaking up the meat and sausage with a wooden spoon.  Return the sirloin to the pot.

(2)   Stir in the remaining ingredients except the garnishes.  As the chili cooks, break up the tomatoes with the wooden spoon.  Bring to a boil; reduce the heat to simmer for at least 2 hours.

(3)   Before serving, remove cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, and jalapenos.  Serve in deep bowls garnished with a dollop of sour cream and grated cheddar cheese.

Add fresh cornbread with butter and you have a great fall or winter meal to watch football in front of the TV!
